Awesome day yesterday, but I don’t have time to write it up yet. We did the Jewel Cave National Monunent, and I have a ton of photos. Amazing place.
Then we drove across Wyoming to the Shell Creek Campground in the Bighorn National Forest. We went through a pass at 9,300 ft. We saw a fox, prarie dogs, and a moose with her calf. We were winding down a road with 35 mph limit and turned off onto a dirt road 2 miles long to reach the campground. Our site was incredibly beautiful, with purple, gold, and white wildflowers, a raging creek that was all whitewater, and beautiful trees everywhere. The sky at night was just what you’d expect once you get away from the light pollution. But of course, no 4G and no WiFi, so we couldn’t check in with Sherie or go online, poor us.
It was a magical campground and we have a lot of photos we’ll try to post soon. Right now I’m in Cody, Wyoming in a McDonald’s using free wifi. Not sure if there will be 4G in Yellowstone, but we’ll find out in a few hours. We plan to spend the afternoon touring Yellowstone and then camping there tonight. If we can get some 4G in our campsite, we’ll try to put a lot more online.
William and Alex are seeing things they’ll never see in North Carolina. We’ve got the whole ‘pitching camp, breaking camp’ thing down to a science.
More later, I hope!
